Summers are terrible for me whenever I think of the pimples that are going to pop up plus the extra oil that will secrete all day.

Yes, I have oily, acne-prone skin. I try out different face washes in different seasons, just to find the one that suits my skin perfectly. If I’m not wrong, I‘ve found the perfect one for my face – The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash.

I’ve tried a lot of face washes in the past, and I won’t say none of them worked for me. Some worked partially with a rating of 3 or 4, while others did not work at all.

As for my skin type, age at the moment, lifestyle and seasonal conditions, this face wash from The Body Shop has suited me perfectly.


The gel-based cleanser removes excess oil and impurities from the skin. With daily use, skin looks visibly clearer and shine-free.


Rs. 695 for 250 ml

Skin Type Suited For: Oily to combination skin

My experience with the product

I use this face wash twice a day – in the morning and in the evening. It leaves my skin soft and supple. It prevents my skin from secreting the excess oil but that lasts for only about 5 hours. After that, the skin becomes little oily again but with limited gleam.

I also noticed that my skin has become clearer, evener and radiant with consistent use. My skin doesn’t feel stretchy after use.

Even though the price is on the higher end, the quantity seems to supplement the purchase. The TBS Tea Tree Face Wash is very mild and gentle. Usually, I wash my face twice a day, but with this face wash, I can even go for one extra wash without the over-drying feeling.

The face wash has a mint effect and leaves my skin cool and refreshed. It removes all impurities from the skin and I feel rejuvenated after every use. So, this is in my list for the entire summer.

Using it for over a month, I did not have a single breakout during this period. It controls acne and breakouts very well.

Regarding the blemish control claim, I didn’t see any prominent difference yet. It might take time or might not work at all. I cannot comment on this yet.

Insider Information

I would suggest people with dry skin to avoid this face wash, as it may dry out your face even more. In case, you have acne on dry skin, you can use the TBS Tea Tree Face Wash but use the toner and moisturizer immediately.
